Twitter clients are a dime a dozen, right? Not so. Tapbots' $3 Tweetbot is a well-crafted Twitter app with plenty of useful tools for Tweetaholics. The customizable tab bar makes it easy to access Twitter tools that aren't always easy to find, such as re-tweets and lists. Even better, you can use lists as your timeline--a good way to avoid missing those important tweets. Tweetbot's touch gestures are handy for iPad users too: To view a conversation, simply swipe a tweet to the right; to view replies, swipe to the left.

re: iPad Apps: 10 Hidden Gems
You forgot Note Plus App - a much, much better note taking app. It converts written text to type written text and even lets you record meetings. If there is one note taking app to have, this one is it. I've tried a few and I think this wins hands down. And no - I have nothing to do with the company. In addition, if you're trying to organize your thoughts, the iThoughtsHD is amazing.

"Has this ever happened to you? You're away from work--maybe in an airport or taxi--and want to scan a business card, receipt, poster, or some work-related paper that's within reach."

No.
